RANGERS star Glen Kamara was allegedly subjected to racist abuse during an angry flare-up in their Europa League clash with Slavia Prague.
The Light Blues star was left visibly angered by Slavia defender Ondrej Kudela as angry scenes flared up in the final stages of the 2-0 defrat at Ibrox.
Connor Goldson was penalised for a foul and in the aftermath Kudela covered his mouth and appeared to whisper something towards Kamara – who could be heard screaming in the direction of the referee following his words.
The incident sparked fury amongst the Rangers players with Goldson leading the charge alongside his team-mate after hearing what was allegedly said.
It is not clear at this stage what the comment made towards Kamara was.
The drama continued after the full-time whistle with Steven Gerrard talking to a number of Slavia players on the pitch as well as members of the Slavia coaching staff.
Speaking about the incident on BT Sport, Stephen Craigan said: “It looks like he has been abused in some way, we don’t know how.
“But the fact he has covered his mouth shows he wants it to remain private.
“He has travelled 60 or 70 yards to get involved in an incident across the pitch.”
TV pictures showed Gerrard and his Slavia counterpart Jindrich Trpisovsky out on the pitch in discussions once again after the match with officials as they spoke about the incident in length.
Speaking after full-time, Gerrard confirmed Kamara had told him he was racially abused.
The Liverpool legend said: “Glen Kamara is one of my own. I 100 per cent believe him. Other players around him heard it.
“It’s over to UEFA now.. and I hope it doesn’t get brushed under the carpet.
“I’m proud of all of my players showing solidarity.
“The disappointing thing for me is there are people trying to defend the opposition player – calling us liars.
“I stand by Glen Kamara. The whole club stands together behind him.”
